Vegetarian Enchiladas:  Delicious and Healthy

How do you turn Vegetarian Enchiladas into an evening?
Why Vegetarian Enchiladas?
A few days ago I prepared dinner for a friend on her way to Cuba.  Although she will certainly have fabulous and authentic Cuban food while she’s there, I wanted to make a Latin American dish to celebrate her upcoming trip.  I decided to make Vegetarian Enchiladas since they are tasty, healthy and comforting.

These Chicken Enchiladas will be an instant crowd-pleaser. Ideal for a family supper, a potluck, a welcome gesture for a new neighbor moving in, or any other happy occasion.

You can prepare this Red Enchilada Sauce in less than an hour.  There is enough sauce in this recipe for sixteen ample-size enchiladas.  I often make a bit more so we have some extra sauce in the house for a few days afterwards to add into other dishes.  For instance, I add a little Red Enchilada Sauce into some soup to enhance the flavor.  Or put a few tablespoons into a pasta or r…
